Dan Aykroyd offers up some details on the Ghostbusters 3 plot

May. 20, 2013by: Niki Stephens

I'll be honest here, I've kinda stopped following any GHOSTBUSTERS 3 news. The only reason I'm posting this is because it has plot details for said installment. One of the bigger talkers on the subject, Dan Aykroyd was recently on LARRY KING NOW and said this on Bill Murray's unlikely return:

He’s a good friend, I love him, but he just doesn’t want to reprise the role. However, there will be a role for him. If Billy wants to walk in the door and be in the movie, we will find a place.”

He then went into what the film would be centered around:

“We’re going to have to cast. We need four new ghostbusters. We need four new Columbia students. It’s based upon new research that’s being done in particle physics by the young men and women at Columbia University. Basically there’s research being done that…I can say that the world or our dimension that we live in, our four planes of existence, length, height, width, and time, become threatened by some of the research that is being done. And Ghostbusters, new Ghostbusters have to come and some the problem."

While tons of people are nostalgic over the GHOSTBUSTERS franchise, there are many who don't care to see a new batch of Ghostbusters. There are also the Murray faithful who are picking up on his vibes about the project. The drama surrounding it all might be more interesting than the final project. I will be happy to see some of the former Ghostbusters in the third movie, but have to save my judgment for the final project.

I would really love a third 'Ghostbusters', but Akroyd just keeps going on about it. Until I see an onset photo of the cast and crew filming, I am done getting my hopes up.

how great would it be

how funny would it be if Aykroyd turns out to be in the film for just 1 scene after all of this?

Just let it die Dan Aykroyd!

I really don't see this movie coming out good. No ones going to see it w/ Murray and it just won't feel like ghost busters w/ out him. Even if he was in I would still have my doubts. I loved the first two (yes even the 2nd one) so why dosnt he just end it on a high note?

I am so over GB3 news. Aykroyd needs to realize that without Murray no one will care about this movie.

Ghostbusters 3 starts to look like Spawn 2 news - i.e. never happen.

DAMN I cant stand another GB 3 rumor, lately each one is worse then the other...and yes Dan Aykroyd is the only member talking about it....almost like he enjoys throwing out rumors that lack substance. I cant believe its been this hard to make a sequel...makes me think that Aykroyd is the only one truly interested in the project.

Without Murray, who gives a shit? Akroyd and Ramis are supporting actors, always have been. Without Murray this long-rumored film has no draw.

Kill all four of them in the first 5 minutes of the movie, and the movie will do well.

This will NOT be a TRUE Ghostbusters without Bill Murray. Plain and simple.

Shit or Get off the Pot

Akyroyd seems like the only interested party for another GB film. Personally, if the material is solid, make another one. But how long has this second sequel been talked about? I've lost the vast majority of interest and each time Stanz keeps talking about it, that interest decreases. Of course it would have to be new recruits and this angle shows some sort of promise. But I can just see this movie in my head now. Ray, Egon and Winston show up, with Winston having nothing more than a glorifies

But I can just see this movie in my head now. Ray, Egon and Winston show up, with Winston having nothing more than a glorifies cameo like he did in the previous two. Ray and Egon shepherd the new guys on how to be Ghosbusters, one or both of them gets killed or taken to another dimension and the new guys have to go get them back. I'd be willing to bet I'm rather close on the framework to that script Dan is talking about.

GB 3 news

There really needs to be a filter for all upcoming Ghostbusters 3 news, If it comes from Dan Akroyd it's really not news at all. The guy's been saying the same stuff for what it feels like years, Bill Murray doesn't want to be in it, the Script is done, and there's gonna be new ghostbusters joining in.

BTW, why hasn't Ernie Hudson or Rick Moranis commented on GB3 yet? You'd think they'd have something to say since well, They're both ghostbusters.
